Course educates and safeguards children from internet dangers
Police have developed a safe internet training course for primary school children in Exeter.
Some of primary schools already have specific teachers trained in this area, but the local policing team wants to offer the same opportunity to all schools.
Julia Watton, community safety officer, said: "With the internet being used for every aspect of our lives, it's imperative that children are educated in its uses and safeguarded from its dangers. Having designated teachers trained in this subject enables each school to independently teach pupils the hazards associated with the internet and allow pupils to have a vital point of contact within the school."
Representatives from Alphington, Whipton Barton, Ladysmith, St Leonard's, Topsham, Montgomery, Countess Wear, Willow Brook, St Nicholas and staff from Devon youth services attended the training.
